You can watch the short video for visual instructions.Slice the onion into thin rounds and fry in 1 tbsp heated oil in a skillet. Cook over medium heat until caramelized, about 15 minutes, adding a few spoons of water after about 5 and 10 minutes to help with the caramelization process, stirring in between. Then remove the caramelized onions from the skillet.
Meanwhile, slice the potatoes (1/4-inch resp. 0,6-0,7 cm thick). Add the potato slices to a pot, cover with water, add some salt and bring it to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low-medium and let the potatoes simmer for about 4-5 minutes. Then drain the water and dry the potatoes with a kitchen towel.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in the same skillet you used for the onions and add the cooked potatoes. Cook for about 10-15 minutes over medium heat, or until the potatoes are crisp and golden brown.
Then add the caramelized onions, the spices and cook for a further few minutes.
Serve and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
